SERC ADOPTED DECISIONS ON DISTRIBUTION AND SUPPLY TARIFFS FOR BRČKO DISTRICT OF BIH

At the session of the State Electricity Regulatory Commission (SERC) held on 27  December 2017 in Tuzla, following a public hearing, the decisions on tariffs for distribution services and electricity supply within universal service in the Brčko District of BiH were adopted, which will be applied as of 1 January 2018.

JP Komunalno Brčko is a public supplier in the area of the Brčko District BiH which purchases all electricity for supply of its customers on the wholesale electricity market. Although in its application this regulated Company asked for an average increase of 5.4% and 24.2% of the distribution and supply tariffs respectively, SERC did not change by its decisions the tariffs for distribution network utilization, while average prices of supply of small commercial customers and households were increased by 3% and 7.6% respectively. The increase in prices on the wholesale electricity market in 2017 was taken into account when adapting the prices while the operational and capital costs of Komunalno Brčko in electricity activity were kept at the achieved level.

In the first half of 2017, households in the Brčko District of BiH had the lowest average electricity price in Bosnia and Herzegovina (12.71 fening/kWh). The new prices for households are 3.3% lower than those paid by customers of Elektroprivreda BiH, that is, 9.4% lower than those paid to Elektroprivreda HZHB, and 6.4% higher compared to households supplied by Elektroprivreda RS. Thus, the new prices for households in the Brčko District BiH continue to be lower than an average price for households in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
